Delilah Brown, formerly nothing more than a girl from the hood-wanna be superstar, now finds herself on top of the world and the music charts. Living the so-called American dream, Delilah is proof that all good things come to those who wait. But when this pop phenom is found dead, she only proves that all good things come to an end. There are too many whispering rumors and circumstances surrounding her death, and too little time to determine the facts. Was it an accident? Was it murder? The list of suspects grows as Delilah's gangster rapper boyfriend is one of the first to be blamed. But, then there is her incarcerated jealous ex-boyfriend. Could he have anything to do with it? Not to mention her envious former group members that she had left behind to become a solo act. Last, but not least, there is her cruel record executive who couldn't stand to see her in the arms of another man. Just when it seems as though the case is about to turn as cold as the dead diva's body, her grieving grandmother stumbles upon her diary. The pages of Delilah's intimate thoughts are just as intriguing and suspenseful as the pages of this explosive novel. Diva gives readers an eye-opening glimpse into the lavish world of a music megastar. It proves, as the old saying goes, that everything that glitters ain't gold.

Era by era, from the writings of the classical Christian epoch up to East of Eden and Amadeus, from Philo to Finnegans Wake, Ricardo Quinones examines the contexts of a master metaphor of our culture. This brilliant work is the first comprehensive book on the Cain and Abel story. "Ricardo Quinones takes us on a grand tour of Western civilization in his admirable book, which reveals the riches of the Cain-Abel story as it develops from its Biblical origin to Citizen Kane and Michel Tournier. This is cultural history and literary criticism of the first order, finely written, formidably but gracefully erudite, and illustrating the capacity of Judeo-Christian culture and the modernity emerging from it constantly to criticize the darker side of its own foundations and realizations."--Joseph Frank "Ricardo J. Quinones skips Biblical and Talmudic exegesis to follow Cain and Abel through later centuries, from classical times to the present. What he uncovers sheds light on important shifts of consciousness and behavior in European and American culture. . . . Quinones writes with true eloquence and conviction. . . ."--James Finn Cotter, The Hudson Review "Quinones's study of how [the] three Cains were transformed by Romanticism and Modernism into a sometimes positive, sometimes negative, but always necessary archetype of the modern world is literary and cultural analytic history at its very best."--Choice Ricardo J. Quinones is Josephine Olp Weeks Professor of English and Comparative Literatures, and Director of the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies, at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California. He is the author of The Renaissance Discovery of Time (Harvard), Dante Alighieri (Twayne), and Mapping Literary Modernism: Time and Development (Princeton). Originally published in 1991. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
